“Aquaman” and “Gangster Squad” screenwriter Will Beall has been set to pen the remake of the classic creature feature “The Creature From The Black Lagoon” at Universal Pictures.
The original 1954 film follows an expedition into the Amazon that discovers the massacre of a previous one by what appears to be a piscine amphibious humanoid.
The project is one of the films in the growing monsters shared universe at Universal that begins with this Summer’s “The Mummy” reboot opening in June.
Chris Morgan and Alex Kurtzman, who are overseeing the monsters universe, will likely produce. Films about Frankenstein, the Invisible Man, the Bride of Frankenstein and vampire hunter Van Helsing are all in development.
